Our Veterinary Team

Dr Chad Malpass

Dr. Chad Malpass | Medical Director

Dr. Chad Malpass grew up just a few miles down the road from Westchester Veterinary Hospital. He started working here as a veterinary technician in 2009 while pursuing degrees in Biology and Chemistry from our very own High Point University.

Thereafter, he graduated Magna Cum Laude from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine, where he was awarded the Robert D. Horne Orthopedic Surgery Award and is the recipient of the National Bayer Excellence in Communication Award.

He has special interests in osteoarthritis and ACL (more correctly called CCL) injury and repair. He also enjoys nutritional medicine and educating clients on how to keep their pets happy and healthy. Dr. Malpass has received additional training in diagnostic ultrasound.

In their free time, Dr. Chad, his wife Alix, and their boxer Sookie love to eat great food and travel. Weekends are filled with hiking, biking, skiing, bird hunting, fishing, or exploring something new; whether it be 10 minutes from home or on the other side of the globe. Did we mention he likes to eat?
